Lovely bikes lovely, but everyday bikes interesting too. I won't post first, but I'm taking pictures right now.  1 I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!

Another attempt at approximating a Gran Sport. The photo doesn't show how bad the paint and chrome are. I did find a reasonable nail varnish as a touch-up. 

Not sure if it would be worth the £££ getting a colour match respray.

I wanted to share a picture of my trusty Perraro Electric Bike! This bike has been my companion on countless adventures, providing a perfect blend of power, comfort, and sustainability. Whether I’m cruising through city streets or tackling off-road trails, this e-bike never fails to deliver a smooth and exhilarating ride.

In the picture, you can see the sleek design of the lightweight aluminum frame, built for durability and style. The powerful 750W brushless hub motor is a standout feature, making uphill climbs effortless and ensuring a swift, enjoyable ride. The 48V 15Ah lithium-ion battery is another highlight, offering an impressive range of up to 60 miles on a single charge, so I can explore without worrying about running out of power.

The bike is equipped with a front suspension fork with 100mm travel, which absorbs bumps and rough terrain, ensuring a comfortable ride. The hydraulic disc brakes provide reliable stopping power in all conditions, adding a layer of safety to my rides. The 27.5” all-terrain tires are perfect for both urban commutes and off-road adventures, giving me the versatility I need.

One of my favorite features is the LCD display, which keeps me informed about speed, battery level, and distance traveled. It’s incredibly handy for planning my rides and keeping track of my progress. The bike also comes with integrated LED lights for enhanced visibility and safety, a rear rack for carrying cargo, and ergonomic grips for added comfort.

Overall, my Perraro Electric Bike has been a game-changer, making my rides more enjoyable and eco-friendly. I’m excited to share this picture with you all and look forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences with e-bikes!

I think you got lost on your way to a motorcycle forum.

This is great. But what I'm really looking for is a sticker to put on my top-tube to tell me when to eat and drink during a ride.

Brian Rourke, 1983. 
Just had some new wheels so given a it a thorough clean and taken a photo for the scrapbook. Also swapped the rear mech from a PAT 74 to PAT 84. Got to move with the times, haven't you. 
Largely used for commuting. Hence the need for new wheels. And use of a good saddle. 
Occasional outings into The Peaks.

New bike day!

I just used my Brompton to pick up this Trek District 4 equipped. I was going to build something like this myself, but this ticked nearly all the boxes as built.

Dynamo powered lighting
Full mudguards
Belt drive
Internal hub (8 speed Alfine)

The only change I plan to make soon is maybe cut down the bars. As supplied they are over 68 cm, which just seems ludicrously wide for a city bike.

My personal bicycle realized, as I do for my customers, entirely handmade.

This is my Super Light Steel Frame Bicycle completely handmade by Forgione Telai

Super Light 6.4kg Racing Bike: Customized frame in Columbus steel with the Silver Fillet Brazed technique and components to go even under the lower limit weight suitable for competitions
 

The limit weight to participate in the races, what you imagined could only be approached with a carbon frame, the fateful 6.8 kg, you can have them with a complete bike with a steel frame!

You can also have a bike that weighs less than 6.8kg but made with a Forgione steel frame!

Project "Superlight steel" complete bike with customized frame and lightening details in Columbus Spirit steel joining method: Silver Fillet Brazed.

My daily commute bike (tbf it is my only bike) - a Voodoo Limba.

23km a day. Up to 4,700km since new.
Put anti-puncture tyres on it, mud guards and clipless pedals.

It's been great for my commute - I was only supposed to cycle a few days a week, but I've been doing five days a week for a year and a half now. Never want to go back to driving!

Just picked up this little beauty. A little delayed waiting for the various accessories (delayed by the flooding in Italy apparently).

Garage bike? The sort of seller your mother warned you about? This is the cockpit of a Barracuda Team Replica, donated to the Repair Cafe. 700x23s with schrader valves, 7x3 gears and, er these twist grip shifters.  The stem seems stuck, I've had the bolt right out, given it a bash or two.

Got this Decathlon folding bike cheap on eBay. This is now my 5th bike, and probably my last one for a while.

Planning to use it for situations where I want to drive somewhere then cycle the last few miles - going to a music festival later this year and the park and ride bus is about £30 per day, but there's free parking 3 miles away from the venue.

£499.00 from millets. I just had a small space in my bike shed to fit it in. Too cheap to leave on the shelf 🤣

After posting my Cinelli in Nov 2020 which turned out to be a really cool bike , i have now replaced it with this beauty, a 2024 Scott Addict 10, picked her up today from the local bike shop which I like doing rather than the www.

Reverse snobbery edition since all bikes cost at least £2000 - Orbit America c1990 my current commuter hack, a rideaway £100 Ebay purchase last year.  It had some nasty rust on the underside of the top tub. 

Verigated blue, 531 throughout, early 7s 105 groupset, Gamma strada rims.  The rack (£20), mudguards (lying around) and 50/36 chainset (£30) were modifications I made for its new role.

This is my ULEZ avoidance device. It's a Halfords bike, and the accessories are all ebay parts. I use it to avoid the zone once a week, by driving part way, and cycling the rest. Most of the cycle portion takes place on seperated paths, so no need to worry about motor traffic. Despite its relative cheapness, the only problem I've had so far was a broken pedal. 👍
